Refinement Recommendations for Intravenous Injection and Body Heat Conservation in Mongolian Gerbils used in SPECT Studies

Abstract
This paper describes two aspects of Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) which have been refined for use in small animals, as demonstrated by a study on Mongolian gerbils: intravenous injection of radiotracers in the femoral vein and body heat conservation in animals anaesthetized at the time of scanning. Elaborating on recommendations made by other authors, we have combined chemical and physical restraint to optimize injection efficiency as well as to reduce handling time of the animals. Finally, we provide a detailed description of a SPECT compatible water-heated scanning bed, the application of which we believe is not limited to scintigraphic studies.
